"Cars 2" [B]

They had me at "Finn McMissile" and "Holley Shiftwell". I had a great time watching this movie, mostly spotting all of the spy movie tropes being trotted out and listening to the engaging spy movie soundtrack. But I also enjoyed the great animation and all of the visual gags involving the international locations and associated ethnic stereotypes.

I suppose there was a plot in there somewhere. I'm sure there are even a few school-age kids and a few more adults who could follow it. There was a lesson about being yourself and friendship in there, too. But mostly it was a couple of hours of chasing, shooting, and talking cars. It was a great way to spend a rainy summer afternoon.
